Buttery crispy-edged mouthfuls of gorgeousness

Hot, cool, sweet, sour and crunchy – just the ticket for a balmy summer’s evening.
Crunchy sweet and spicy – just the thing with a glass of bubbles!
Sizzling and smoky prawns and bacon-wrapped scallops. Mmmmm. Now there’s a thing to serve with drinks …
Sometimes the simplest things are the best but often we don’t see them as such unless we stand back and inhale deeply. ‘Come ‘round for drinks’ just rolls off the tongue when we invite people over, but as the day approaches, it can strike fear in our hearts, not because the house needs a makeover […]
These sandwiches make a little hot-smoked salmon go a long way.
This dessert is a winner. Simple, quick, must be prepared ahead, and tastes fantastic.
Mmmm. Pink and juicy and heaps of flavour, these delicious little morsels of lamb are irresistible.
It’s easy making your own labna balls – just strain yoghurt until thick, then flavour it with dukkah, spices, herbs or edible flower petals.
My son Luca reckons this is the best chicken dish he has eaten – ever!

Mint and cumin, ginger, cinnamon and chilli, and almonds, prunes and figs, and, oh, chicken. This is spectacular!
This one will ring all the bells – roasted lamb bursting with flavour and deliciously juicy, and so easy to carve. Makes a little lamb go a long way.

For an over-the-top version, serve with bacon and tomatoes, and dust the hot egg with flakes of fresh parmesan. Bliss.
Ah yes, hippiedom, flower power, all of that, but no, actually, these flowers are for eating not sticking in a vase or around your hair. And pretty they look, too.
This is hardly a recipe, just a combination of delicious ingredients which are somehow more gorgeously decadent when combined.
At my house we all fell in love with this dish at the first mouthful. The clean acidity of apple salad mingling with crème fraîche and sweet juicy pork cutlets had us all in raptures.
Preserved lemon and spices really work their magic on lamb, giving it a spicy sweetness which tastes just as good as it smells during cooking.
